In The Region:

Update 12:02 p.m.: Bond has been set at  for Judge Mason at $65,000, and he's been ordered to have no contact with his wife or two young children, who were in the car at the time the alleged assault occurred. His next hearing is Aug. 13 at 8:30 a.m.

A Cuyahoga County judge and former state lawmaker is facing at least one charge of felonious assault.

Lance Mason is accused of causing his wife serious physical harm, though he details on her injuries are not yet clear.

He was arrested Saturday afternoon at his home in Cleveland, but the charges filed so far are in Shaker Heights. Shaker Heights Prosecutor C. Randolph Keller says more charges may be filed elsewhere.

"A number of these things occurred within our city. I'm not going to get into a lot of details in that regard. I can tell you some of it occurred in public. There is another component of this that will be addressed by the Cleveland Police Department and certainly their law enforcement people.

A Democrat, Mason was in the Ohio Senate and House and was an aide to Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones before then-Gov. Ted Strickland appointed him to the bench in 2008.

He sits on the common pleas court, which hears higher level civil and felony criminal cases.
